The recipient of our March community outreach offering is the Lutz Children’s Museum. Many of you are familiar with the Lutz Children’s Museum, which is truly a Manchester treasure. Originally formed in 1953, it primarily serves children ages 2 to 10 and focuses on local history, animal welfare, and many other kinds of exhibits you won’t find in your typical children’s museum.

#1020 in Singing the Journey

We are going, 
heaven knows where we are going,
but we know within

And we will get there,
heaven knows how we will get there,
but we know we will.

It will be heard, we know,
and the road will be muddy and rough,
but we’ll get there,
heaven knows how we will get there,
but we know we will.

Woyaya, Woyaya,
Woyaya, Woyaya.

Extinguishing the Chalice

Closing Circle
May faith in the spirit of life,
And hope for the community of earth,
And love of the light in each other,
Be ours now, and in all the days to come.
